Scott Summit - Art of the Exoskeleton: 3D Printing for the Human Condition
UC Berkeley's Art, Technology & Culture Colloquium

What if you could communicate and spread physical products as easily as software or code? And what if you could modify each one to meet the specific needs of the individual? 3D printing offers just that ability, though its potential has only recently begun to be realized. We are now able to create custom solutions for human needs, based on the individuality of that specific body. But we can go further and infuse that product with beauty, personality and uniqueness with no extra burden, since an entirely digital process remains indifferent to complexity. This presentation will showcase some of the ways that a mass-customized process stands to improve the quality of life for people with needs unmet by mass-produced solutions. It will explore how design, art, and a new approach to product creation may invite new products into our lives.
